Prevention and Treatment Team

Health Program Specialists plan, implement and evaluate health services and activities.  They develop outreach strategies for target and at-risk populations; collaborate with community members and other public and private services and groups, and serve as a consultant and technical advisor to assigned programs.  Here at the Bureau of Behavioral Health, Wellness and Prevention, Health Program Specialists work one-on-one with treatment providers and community prevention coalitions to monitor compliance with grant objectives and reporting requirements.  They participate in the funding process by reviewing proposals submitted by programs and review monthly requests for reimbursement submitted to our office by the funded programs.  Health Program Specialists provide guidance and technical assistance to funded providers regarding data collection and emerging trends.
